NORTHERN IRELAND POLITICAL FUND BALLOT 2017

Attached you will find a copy of the Scrutineers report from the ballot we were required to hold to maintain the POA Political Fund in Northern Ireland. A copy of the Scrutineers report has also been sent to the Certification Officer.

You will see from this report that the resolution was overwhelmingly carried by the voting members in Northern Ireland and that the POA will be continuing to operate a Fund, as set out in the Political Fund Rules for Northern Ireland.

Every member of the Union has a right to be exempt from contributing to the Political Fund.  A form of Exemption Notice can be obtained by or on behalf of any member either by application at Cronin House, local Branch or from the Certification Officer for Trade Unions and Employers Associations, 10-12 Gordon Street, Belfast, BT1 2LG.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those members who voted to maintain the POA’s political voice through this ballot.

Yours sincerely

STEVE GILLAN
General Secretary
